Gog of Magog

Excerpt:

Gog ’s location is “ the north parts ” ( 38:15 ; 39:2 ). The Hebrew word translated “ parts ” means “ extreme or uttermost parts. ” Since Ezekiel was a Hebrew prophet, he would refer to geographical locations from the vantage point of his homeland. Thus, his statement in 38:15 indicates that when Gog leads the six-nation attack against Israel, he will come from his location in the extreme or uttermost parts directly north of Israel. Russia is the nation situated in the extreme or uttermost parts directly north of Israel.
